Now he's pitching like Wright was for Boston the other night. At least the relay worked. Schoop threw to the right base this time.

That would require putting Mancini in for Trumbo, among other things.

Orioles trailing by 7 in the second inning and Jim Hunter calling the game on TV.

Guess I am watching hockey.

Arroyo has no velocity whatsoever. So runs may be hard to come by for the Orioles lol


You're correct so far...

On a lighter note, that was the 5th BB of the season for Jones. A few years ago, wasn't that his season total?

My bad. His low for a full season was 19.

Just as the Orioles starting staff starts to receive some National praise, Gausman comes out and does this. So predictable.

 

Yeah ole Kevin will give you 4 or 5 of these stinkers every year.  Tonight was an embarrassment.  Bundy is so far ahead of this guy it isn't funny.  Bundy is a pitcher and Kevin still is just a thrower in some of these bad outings.  He had no idea what he was doing tonight.

This would be the time to put Ubaldo in the game & make him pitch the rest of the contest. Thoughts?

Yeah Wilson and Nuno look like batting practice pitchers.  Worley under appreciated.

Why not. He isn't listed as a probable starter through Saturday.

0-2 pitch and the guy hits a granny. Unbelievable


Not really. They had a stat on the radio this evening: Gausman has something like a .407 BAA when ahead in the count, and like .171 when behind. I don't know if those numbers are exact, but they are crazy numbers none the less.

It's .409 and .174.  Pretty nuts but that's just for 2017.  Small sample size thus far and his career (and I assume that of most pitchers) indicates that it will fix itself.

Watch Tyler Wilson put away six straight with 15 pitches in this reverse laugher, and then he'll still be around for when it might matter.

This series won't get any better tomorrow with U-Stinko on the mound.

Meanwhile, Big Dan continues to do nothing to fix the pitching rotation.

Sometimes I wonder if he has much in general. Can't figure out what his problem is. Maybe it's that he came up through the Orioles system which struggles mightily developing talent when it comes to pitchers

Yet many people continue to drool over this guy. He hasn't shown me much of anything. He'll have one good game than a stinker and so on. He is not consistently good, but of course that is the problem with all the Oriole starters. Time to replace the scouting department.
